                                 PRAYER

Pastor Bob MacGregor, City Harvest Church, Vancouver, Washington, offered the following prayer:

Lord, we come today with thanksgiving for the work of Your grace in establishing this at work called America.

Known around the world as the Nation of opportunity, many fight to become a part of us and few desire to leave because You, Lord, have made us great.

Our Founding Fathers understood this by experience and by the Scriptures “that except the Lord builds the House, they labor in vain who build it.” So it has been our deep conviction from our conception to daily appeal to You for wisdom to guide the leaders of this great Nation.

So, once again, we ask for the wisdom to protect all our citizens, provide opportunity for all, help our poor, care for our elderly, secure our families, educate our children, and make our economy strong.

We pray for unity in this endeavor. May righteousness exalt us through all our laws. This we ask respectfully in Jesus' name.

Amen. ____________________
